A very enjoyable way to procrastinate and not get work done is to visit The Heads of State’s site. It’s incredible how much time I can spend looking at their posters. What I wasn’t aware of is that they design book covers as well. These covers for Rosenfeld Media, a publisher of user-experience design material, are just great. So simple, to the point, and graphically pleasing. They have a late 50s, early 60s aesthetic evocative of Paul Rand which I love, while feeling very much of the 21st Century as well.
